Many newcomers say they first come to UU of SCV seeking community. What they find is a diverse, supportive, and accepting community helping one another on their spiritual paths. Often there is some sort of catalyst in newcomers’ lives that prompts them to seek a spiritual home. Perhaps the birth of a child, a new marriage, a divorce, an illness, or some other life-changing event. If you are seeking a spiritual home and nurturing community, we encourage you to create time for reflection and join us each Sunday. Rev. Farriday’s sermons offer energy and inspiration.
Newcomers are encouraged to participate in our social groups or events sponsored by our Social and Environmental Justice Team. Connecting with other members is vital to a full and rich life in our congregation.
We offer a number of “New2UU” orientations throughout the year. This is a wonderful way to learn more about our congregation and Unitarian Universalism, begin making new friends, and learn how to get involved. Please contact the Membership Team, if you have any questions or want to register for a class.
As a newcomer, a great way to explore our congregation is getting involved in some of our groups and activities. We have many groups and activities that you are welcome to join. Our Welcome Table Greeters can help you find the right group and answer any questions you may have. Check out the calendar listings for more information.
